Vice President Hotel Operations
Donald comes to CMI Leisure from FleetPro Ocean Leisure, where he led the entire Food & Beverage Operations. This included spearheading menu development, budgeting, revenue projections, staff recruitment and many other critical business areas.
Today, he brings his passion for performance to CMI Leisure, where he expertly guides all Hotel Operations. From guest satisfaction to crew moral; SOPs to F&B; budgets to KPI targets, he creates and builds the structures that lead to success for our company and our clients.
He’s a hands-on executive, perhaps, due to the fact that he began his career in the kitchen. Donald dazzled both hotel and cruise line guests with his culinary skills. In fact, he won numerous honors for gastronomic excellence and was commended as a Finalist for the Scottish Young Chef of The Year Award.
Donald has gone from cooking in a 5-star kitchen, to supervising large culinary teams, to impacting the entire operations of exclusive cruise ships. He knows this industry from the ground up and that’s a tremendous advantage for CMI Leisure clients.
